their hands and to fix our broken immigration system. mr. speaker, last summer republicans and democrats in the senate came together and passed comprehensive immigration reform with a strong bipartisan vote, a vote of 68 to 32. 68-32. that's like a superduper majority. in fact, one poll last month showed that 63% of americans, 2/3 of americans, support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. business leaders, chambers of commerce, labor unions, faith groups, immigrant families, law enforcement officials, and americans of every race, creed, color, and ethnicity all across our country applauded our senators for reaching across the aisle. for many it really gave hope and belief in our government that we are still capable of putting aside political posturing and to build consensus around the difficult issues that face our country. but today as i speak americans are asking, what happened? they are confused as to why the house of representatives can't do the same thing that the senate did and pass immigration reform. they are even more confused as to why the house can't even dignify
